{Giveaway}: Aneela Hoey Little Apples

** GIVEAWAY CLOSED**

Move along, nothing to see here folks. Or is there?
If you have just found me through the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day, what took you so long? I am a Kiwi who loves to sew, crochet and participate in this biannual event and I invite you to do some creating of your own with my giveaway offering this time around.

The winner will receive 40 charm squares (13x13cm) and 1 fat quarter (45x57cm) of fabric from Aneela Hoey's Little Apples collection.
How'd you like them apples?



Some of you might be wondering why there are not 42 squares. Well, if you win, you can tell everyone that you're two squares short of a charm pack. Guffaw. In truth, I have children, who are a little like zits in that they're annoying but if you pretend they aren't there they will eventually go away. No, I do love them. I just love fabric a little more. On one particular day my girls found one of my charm packs in my fabric stash so I guess I, and by association, you are pretty lucky that 40 squares are still salvagable.

It hasn't been confirmed but I think it is fairly certain that I have a small fabric addiction especially to anything designed by Aneela Hoey, Sarah Jane and Tanya Whelan. To enter my giveaway, leave me a comment telling me what your favourite fabric collection is. International entries are welcome.

**BONUS**
Existing followers of my blog will qualify for two chances to win. New followers are always welcome, but don't feel obligated. I live too far away to chase you down and make you sign up anyway. Just leave a second comment telling me you follow. Anyone cheating the system will be hunted down and made to watch reruns of Charmed (geddit?) - wait a minute, I just said I live too far away to chase people. Or am I?

A winner at the close of the Giveaway Day will be drawn randomly and announced on my blog. In the unlikely event of being unable to reach the winner after three days, I will redraw.

Giveaway closes at midday Saturday 17 May (NZST)/Friday 16 May 5pm (PST).

Important: if you comment anonymously, I will be unable to contact you and your entry will be invalid so please leave an email address in your message. I reply to everyone who gets in touch with me, provided there is an email address link in their profile, but Giveaway Day can get a little crazy, so please take this as my personal acknowledgement to all you fabric hounds for stopping by.

Don't forget to visit all of the other participating blogs. To help you on your journey:
May the blogs rise up to meet you
May your chair always be at your back
May the computer screen glare shine warm upon your face
and prizes fall soft upon your mailboxes
And until we meet again
May your smartphones be held in the palm of your hand.

It's a lesser known Irish blessing. Look it up.
